An OK vehicle but far overrated!!
By maureena on


1996 Subaru Legacy L 4dr Sedan


Purchased in early 2000 with 68,000
miles. Subs are big business in the NW
so figured it would maintain a great
resale value. Now have approx 137k
miles and will probably get rid of
it. To often, something is going
wrong, now it has another oil leak
that will require tearing apart the
engine to find. On again, off again
pinging coming from underneath and
squeaking from the passenger side
wheels. This model looks better with
the spoiler (which I have) but wished
I'd chosed something other than
the "suburu green" color which is far
too common of a color for sub. Also,
paid way too much for this car.

Best Features

Turns easily, storage capacity has been great, comfortabe interior; has been dependable.

Worst Features

Too loud on the inside when driving (of course I had a camry prior to this); too difficult for weekend "mechanics" to get to certain things within the engine area; fuel economy sucks!!
